Top referring Agencies

Did you know the top five agencies accounted for 68% of the children helped this past year?  The top agency was KidSport (Edmonton, Grande Prairie, Fort Saskatchewan, and Alberta Chapters) which account for 26% of the children helped.  KidSport qualifies families by income and provides grants to help cover the cost of sport registration.  KidSport then refers the children to Sport Central for the sport equipment they need to be successful on the field, pitch, gym, or rink.  Self-Referrals account for 24% of children helped.  Self-Referrals are families already on social programs such as Edmonton Leisure Access Program, Health Benefits Card, AISH, and Alberta Works.  Boys & Girls Clubs Big Brothers Big Sisters account for 9%, followed by Edmonton Immigration Services Association at 6% and Child and Family Services at 4%.
